Arthur Mendonça FW Collection 2012: World MasterCard Fashion Week Toronto

Arthur Mendonca @ Toronto Fashion Week

Designer, Arthur Mendonca presented a tight collection on day 5 of World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. Arthur showcased well tailored separates, dresses and pant suits in bright colors and neutrals. We saw various shapes from 1940’s pin skirt to wide 1950s skirt styles.  You could class this collection as a day to night as both day wear and floor length dresses were included. Fabrics used included shiny and colorful lace, leather, wool, fur with the addition of fun BIG IT UP bowler hats, tying the style up perfectly. Very wearable and easy to mix in with your existing wardrobe! Here are some of our favorite looks from the collection.

What every woman needs in her closet. A proper pant-suit. We adore the cut of the jacket and pants that take a bit from the 1970’s with a boot leg pant, and longer double-breasted jacket with 3 flat pockets. Have to mention the color here. GORGEOUS.
Leather bodice, wide belt, narrow skirt with lace stockings? In love.
The bowler hat and leather gloves add to the drama of this great outfit. We love the addition of zippers at the side of the skirt and the fur snood.
This dress is amazing! Well cut, a desirable shape and so lady-like.
Here’s an example of the colored, shiny lace. We will totally try this look going into fall this year. Its the best of both worlds! Glitter & Color!
Here’s an example of an evening look from the show. We love the color, the draping and the addition of gold.
